Chemistry 112/114/115/250 registration problems?
Please keep trying - more seats will come available!
Procedure for registration overrides:
- Registration is limited by registration in the associated laboratories. As laboratory scheduling is constrained by safety concerns, registration overrides will only be given to students who are applying for lab exemptions, or if there are available lab spots but limited lecture spots.
- Please note that instructors *will not* sign registration override forms for Chem 112, 114, 115 or 250. Instructors do not have information on lab registration and scheduling.
Historically, space always opens up in the first week of classes as other students drop classes or move to term 2. Please keep trying - PAWs is the only way for students to register themselves in courses. Laboratories start in mid-September, so there is plenty of time for you to register!
Term 2 registration problems?
If classes are already full in Term 2, namely Chem 112, Chem 114, Chem 115 and Chem 250, please keep trying to register up until the beginning of Term 2. A number of students withdraw before the beginning of classes.
Overrides for Term 2 will not be processed until at least December.
Prerequisites for Chemistry 112
The prerequisites for Chem 112 are Chemistry 30 and (Mathematics B30 or Foundations of Mathematics 30 or Pre-Calculus 30). Prerequisites and corequisites have been established by the college after thorough examination of courses and programs. Therefore, a prerequisite will normally be waived only if an equivalent alternative learning experience can be identified. Please see the following sites for information about taking Chemistry 30 by night classes or cyber school:
If you have an identifiable equivalent learning experience that you would like to have considered by the course coordinator, please fill out a Prerequisite and Corequisite Waiver/Substitution Form form, and drop it off at the Chemistry Office (Thorvaldson Building, Room 165).
